Headliners Timothy Bradley and Diego Chaves were on hand in Los Angeles yesterday to officially announce their December 13 HBO fight. The bout will be Bradley’s first fight since losing a unanimous decision to Manny Pacquiao in May. Chaves is also looking to get back in the win column after suffering a ninth round DQ loss to Brandon Rios in August.
The co-feature has Mauricio Herrera, who’s still riding the wave as an “uncrowned champion” after a controversial majority decision loss to Danny Garcia in March. Herrera rebounded with a majority decision win over Johan Perez in July. Herrera’s opponent, undefeated prospect Jose Benavidez, is making his first step in to the world-class level. Benavidez’s last bout was a first round TKO over Henry Auraad in July.
The card will broadcast live from the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
